The Vinaigrettes

Label: Incentive Records
circa 1991 - circa 1998
The Vinaigrettes was a Canadian pop-rock band founded in Victoria, BC, as as an all-girl foursome in 1991, breaking up in 1998 after a dizzying number of line-up changes. Featuring Carolyn Mark at one point, the original bassist and drummer apparently went by the names Elfis Parsley Vinaigrette and Herb Vinaigrette.
"My first band was The Vinaigrettes. We started as an all-girl foursome from Victoria. The Vinaigrettes recorded six albums, achieving a modest amount of obscurity, and broke up in 1998 due to "nervous indifference"... Exhausted and emotionally crushed by the failure of my first band and the ensuing two year bender, I attempted to find solace in the rehearsal spaces of other bands such as: Hat Head, The Fixin's, The Show Business Giants, The Metronome Cowboys, The Corn Sisters (a duo with label-mate Miss Neko Case), Monster Tweety, and Klugman. But eventually, while hiding under the bed at one of our neverending house parties, I decided to use my own name when I played. So far it's been a good idea - I'm not married to any one style of music, I can play solo or with a band depending on the money or my mood, and it's almost impossible for me to break up with myself."
